A store manager in North Carolina donated $100 into a replacement Salvation Army kettle after police say a thief swiped one from a bell ringer helping a grandmother at the Hanes Mall in Winston Salem.

Authorities say bell ringer James Griffin III was helping a grandmother and her four grandchildren get through the double doors of the Belk store at Hanes Mall where he was stationed. When Griffin returned to his post, the kettle and the $50 in it were gone.

Winston-Salem police Lt. Brad Yandell said there was no video of Tuesday's theft, and investigators have no leads.

Maj. James Allison, commander of the Salvation Army of Winston-Salem, said the agency would have helped if the thief had a need.
